19 December 2013:-
This years Annual General Meeting (AGM) was held at the Civil Service Sports Club in Filton Avenue, Bristol on the 26th April 2013.
Ralph Groves the the CSPA Deputy general Seretary was to have been the speaker at the AGM but a signalling problem stopped ralph from travelling from Surrey.
Unfortunately the meeting was not well attended apart from the Committee and wives.
The July Group meeting was also not so well attended which after previous years good attendances is not promising.
Our 27th September meeting which had by special request a speaker from the Cooperative Funeral Service to talk about funeral planning, was a much better attended meeting than the three previous Group meetings, including the AGM. The speaker was very informative and much to the delight and indeed surprise of the audience quite light hearted and even amusing. An excellent advert for the Cooperative Funeral Service.
The final group meeting of 2013 on 6th December was reasonably well attended by over 20 members who had plenty of Christmas bites to share around. The speaker gave a talk on the Fry's Chocolate factories in Bristol which was well rerceived
